Motivation Monday!

As I'm typing this I realize that this is the last #MotivationMonday I will write for the year of 2015. I think it was this year where I started with the idea of having Motivation Monday and I honestly couldn't be happier. I like the idea of bringing something other than fashion to my blog, to show others that there's more to me than just the #ootd's. Regardless if this is a fashion blog, I will still continue to write these because of positive energy they exude when you read them. Sometimes I feel like I am writing to myself and trying to get myself pumped for the week and if you feel like that when you read this, then my job and point of these posts are well read. I don't want to go into the usual "5 things to do in 2016" or anything like that but rather I want to leave you with some wisdom that has always resonated with me. 

When I first started the whole fashion thing on Instagram I'll admit that I was a bit shy and felt weird about it. There was people out there that knew me and since I was doing something different they saw it as weird. And at first, it bothered me. It made me feel self conscious that there were people out there thinking that what I was doing was funny or crazy. But the more positive feedback I got from it, the more it pushed me to continue. It was then that I learned that being a fashion blogger and starting a YouTube channel leaves you vulnerable to a lot of opinions; and in order to persevere through that you have to develop very thick skin. You have to develop an attitude of "I don't care what other people think" because it's going to be what keeps you going. Once I started doing that, I allowed myself to be free and I let my creative ability run wild. I felt as though my wings were no longer clipped and I was able to do whatever I wanted, when I wanted, and how I wanted.

 In a generation where we are constantly being ridiculed and watched, it is hard to be ourselves. It is hard to really just do our own thing and be happy about it. We might not have the best support system either so on top of that it can be even harder to continue doing what you love. But I'm telling you first hand that even if people think your ideas are crazy, DO THEM ANYWAY. We don't go through life living based on what people think is good or not. Don't you dare let that affect your desires either. The most out of this world ideas are often the best ones and it is when you do something that is different and scares you, you will flourish. You aren't here to make anyone else happy but yourself. Think outside of the box and be different. Continue to go after what you want and let that be your focal point. You're only capable of as much as you allow yourself to be.
